As you know it was my mom's birthday a week ago so tonight we were able to go out to dinner and celebrate with her whole family. My mom is one of the most patriotic people I know so I couldn't resist getting her an American flag. You can send a flag request in to your Congressman to fly an American flag over the United States Capitol. Luckily, I am still on good terms with my office so they made sure to have her flag flown on her birthday. You could say the gift was a success...she loved it!
